Matsalu Bay - geese

Today was a great birding day in north-west Estonia. We visited various sites on the northern shore of Matsalu Bay seeing, amongst others, thousands of flying, roosting, drinking and feeding Barnacle Geese. At one stop I managed to pick out a Red-breasted Goose amongst the mass of Barnacles which proved to be a lifer for most of my party. An adult White-tailed Eagle right overhead also proved popular. Just two and a half day's birding and we already have 96 species. On we go tomorrow...
